Martin spent 3 years learning the craft and science of galvanics at The Vinyl Factory in London. He’s also operated EMI, Toolex and Viryl presses at different plants – so he has a 360 degree view of stamper excellence. Only 29, but he has already amassed a collection of around 2000 records and 1200 tapes. Mainly punk, but with a few surprising forays into Nashville.
Fae grew up in South London surrounded by an eclectic soundtrack of blues, rock & roll, punk, soul and reggae from her mum, who never did quite mange to join the digital era, and an audiophile dad who’s into “primarily indie, but will entertain most music with the exception of kids pop nonsense”. After a successful run at a BSc degree, she decided against putting this to good use, and instead used her experience from the past 8 years working in customer service to pursue a career in an industry she is truly passionate about. Fae’s music taste could be better described as an intense appreciation of music in general, one which spans a wide variety of genres (…with the exception of kids pop nonsense).
A lifelong music fan, musician and vinyl collector, Fergus works in both our electroplating and forming areas. Prior to joining us, he worked for a wholefood co-operative, but helping to make vinyl records is his dream job (other than owning a record shop.) His musical tastes centre around punk and metal, but also stretch from folk to rap.
Peter ran a successful marketing services business for many years… but then succumbed to the temptation of helping Martin set up a new galvanics business. Peter’s vinyl collection, which included many gems from the 70s and 80s, was ‘inherited’ by Martin many years ago, who promptly sold it off to fund a trip somewhere.
